It's less than a week until Clerkenwell Design Week when Clerkenwell will once again be a showcase platform for design talent from across the UK and from overseas. It covers residential and commercial interiors, including furniture, lighting, textiles, and decorative accessories. Here's just a small selection of brands that we're looking forward to visiting.
Having worked with Bisque earlier this year to produce a series of videos demonstrating how you can easily achieve an industrial aesthetic, in any home, using different radiators from their collection, we're looking forward to seeing what they will be showing at Clerkenwell Design Week this year.
Bisque is well known for pioneering exciting finishes and continually developing new ideas, like their most recent colour collection including brushed bronze and brushed black. They also offer a unique colour matching service that can provide close matches to popular paint brands such as Farrow & Ball.
We are particularly looking forward to the brand new line of traditional towel radiators for use in classic bathroom designs. The collection – comprising the Buckingham, Osbourne and Balmoral models – has been carefully designed with a timeless aesthetic in mind, without compromising on performance or output.
The three new designs mark a real turning point for Bisque and present customers with a luxury towel radiator that matches style for substance.
Next on our list is Bisley, makers of precision engineered filing cabinets and storage solutions. In celebration of the first anniversary of their showroom in the heart of Clerkenwell, Bisley will be launching several new products, as well as introducing some exciting collaborations.
Bisley will be unveiling BOB, a beautifully crafted modular storage and display system that premiered in Milan last month. Developed in collaboration with award-winning British designer Paul Kelley, BOB’s infinite configurations can be adapted for any use and environment, whether at home or in the workplace.
BOB is meticulously hand crafted and features a clever system that uses technology friendly magnets to securely lock the modules together. The beauty is in the simplicity and playfulness of the design; cubes and units click together to form different arrangements, allowing the user to change the design of the system instantly, whenever they choose.
They will also be presenting the next evolution of Be, a creative, dual aspect, integrated furniture and storage solution that connects people and the workspace. Be's adaptable,flexible workspace provides a mix of organic hubs where people can interact and connect; whether an area for collaborative working, an individual space for focused desk work, or a relaxed setting for quality breaks.
Samuel Heath also features on our must-visit list. Manufacturers of beautiful taps, showers, bathroom accessories and architectural hardware, Samuel Heath is a favourite brand of ours. At Clerkenwell Design Week they will be launching new finishes, further additions to the Landmark Collection and a brand new exclusive range of mix and match door levers.
Aston Matthews will be exhibiting for the first time, showcasing a diverse range of taps and shower fittings including the Acme collection in scuffed brass and Alto in bronze. If you want to pay a visit to Aston Matthews you can find them in the Elements Pop-Up.
Elements brings together a leading selection of ironmongery, hardware, switch plates and architectural accessories within a streetmarket style pavilion on St John’s Square, becoming a go-to destination for designers looking for the perfect finish.
Rigg is the final of our Five Things to See this year. The company manufactures high quality, contemporary furniture for the workplace, education and hospitality sectors. Their products include tables, storage and custom made items.
Rigg will be taking part in Project. Set in the Garden of St James within the beautiful grounds of Clerkenwell’s parish church, Project brings together a leading selection of contract furniture, lighting and surface brands from around the globe.
We're looking forward to seeing their fresh developments: Trak and Flexx.
